Are you feeling stuck, burned out, unmotivated, exhausted or worse? That’s not life. You were meant to feel alive! By closely examining your thoughts, behaviors, and, most importantly, your emotions, you will discover what beliefs and habits keep you locked in negative, self-defeating patterns, and how to free yourself for good. Regardless of what happens – or happened – to you, you can learn to live a life filled with passion and purpose.
I take a personalized, integrative and collaborative approach to psychotherapy, utilizing a wide array of techniques from depth psychology and individual psychology, to narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and others. I also believe in the power of expressive arts therapy and often incorporate music, art and poetry.
My goal is to create a caring and supportive space for you to feel. To feel safe, and seen, and heard. Fertile ground to fully be and become the awesome person that you are. Let's get to work.
